SPD officer suspended after alleged marijuana scandal

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – A Shreveport Police Officer was placed on leave last Friday September 10th.

Police tell us he was suspended after he allegedly removed marijuana from a suspect's pocket during a search, but then handed it to a bystander, instead of another cop.

Eddie Williams, a four year veteran, will remain on paid administrative leave until the investigation is complete.
